Cucumber Juice 

Cucumber juice is beneficial in improving and maintaining healthy skin, nails and hair.

Fresh, organic cucumbers are of course best, but even conventionally grown cucumbers are fine, just remove the waxy skin first.

Cucumber juice is rich in potassium, silica, manganese, sulfur, vitamin A, vitamin C, foliate and chlorophyll.

This alkaline vegetable strengthens connective tissue, helps to dissolve kidney stones, and is especially useful in cleansing sugar from the body.
